While the D isn't big name, Musil was one of the most impressive defenders in last years tournament. He played a lot of minutes. I don't see why he won't be just as much of a workhorse this year. It's the forward talent that makes me see them in that group of four. Jaskin, Hertl, Frk, Faska, Hyka and others. It's probably the deepest they have been in years. Czechs also tend to play great systems hockey and always seem to play really hard for each other. I've always admired their ability to buy into a team game as a nation. Even in their lean years, they generally manage to challenge, compete and keep games close. Now they have some scoring talent that should push them up a bracket.
